                                                  Collection. This application will help the Besser Museum and the Collection Committee

                                                  understand how your item might support the Besser Museum’s mission. 

The completed application will help us understand the history of the item including what it is,

to whom it belonged, where it was used, when it was used, why it is important, and how it

complements the Besser Museum’s mission. The information provided in these applications,

helps to make the donated items valuable resources for years to come.  

                                   To the best of your ability, please, complete an application for each item you wish to be considered

                                   for inclusion in the collections of the Besser Museum. There are instructions included within the

                                   application regarding where the application should be sent.
